Rheilffordd Talyllyn Railway | Wedding Venue

Book Tickets Online


The Talyllyn Railway's tea room at Abergynolwyn Station is licensed to hold civil marriage ceremonies. Make your Wedding Day extra special, yet different and less formal - hire a steam-hauled train to collect you and your guests from one of our Stations between Tywyn and Dolgoch and carry you to Abergynolwyn Station for the wedding ceremony.

The tea room will be reserved and prepared with flowers, table and seating for the formal ceremony. Afterwards, light refreshments can be served followed by photo opportunities around the station and train before it takes you and your party back down the line to the Station of your choice - you might think of using the Dolgoch Falls Hotel for your Reception, for example. We'll provide a special, personalised headboard for your own train service which is yours to keep.

All the possibilities and arrangements can be discussed with us and we will be pleased to offer help and advice as you plan your special day.

Each station you will use is a working one and your wedding will be individually organised to suit the requirements of everyone involved. The facilities are available most days of the year although it may be difficult to arrange matters for weekdays during our peak season (late July to end of August) because of the frequency of service trains. Your train and arrangements will therefore operate to a timetable suggested by the Talyllyn Railway and largely dictated by the normal service in operation on your chosen day.

The ceremonies are performed under the authority of Superintendent Registrar Mr. Dylan Jones, Meirionnydd Area Office, Cae Penarlag, Dolgellau, Gwynnedd, LL40 2YB who can be contacted on 01341 424341 between 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., Mondays to Fridays. The date and content of the ceremony must be agreed with the Registrar before we can accept a final booking.

Typically, the Wedding Party and guests (wedding groups of up to forty people) join a special train at Tywyn Wharf station for the forty-five minute journey to Abergynolwyn. They are met there by the Registrar who will spend a few minutes talking to the Bride and Groom before the ceremony.

After the ceremony there is time for photographs with the train and light refreshments before you return to Tywyn in your special train, the total time taken being about three hours. The train carries an individual headboard which is yours to keep and you can choose the locomotive and carriages from the stock which is operational at the time.
